Description and Reviews:
2014 Grande Reserva Quevedo Douro Red wine
Once a year or even once in a lifetime, important landmarks celebrate the end of a year, a birth, or an anniversary. Q Grande Reserva can be a gift for loved ones or kept for special occasions, especially if it's of rare and superb make. This is the opportunity for a toast (and a speech!) to mark and remember these moments with friends. Forever. In every "Q" release, we blend our local choice of grapes, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, and Tinta Roriz, famous for their small and intensely perfumed fruit. After a rainy winter and a hot summer, we harvested this edition in the Autumn of 2014, only once the berries were firm, plump and bursting with flavor, making this a generous and balanced wine that will enrich a lush table, and compliment special occasions with friends and family.
93 - Points Wine Enthusiast. Aged for 14 months in large new-wood barrels, this wine from the Quevedo siblings is lush and generous, with swathes of ripe, rich fruit. Firm tannins promise further aging, while the juicy fruitiness shines strongly. Drink from 2019.
89 pts Robert Parker - The nose is fruity and relatively intense/concentrated. It reveals notes of blackberry jam, mocha and discreet notes of undergrowth associated with a hint of grove, cassis and raspberry as well as discreet hints of tobacco and cardamom. The mouth is fruity, mineral, well-balanced, elegant and offers a fresh frame, a nice density, a nice volume as well as a beautiful grain. Nice palate! In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, strawberry, plum jam and slight hints of strawberry associated with discreet hints of oak, mocha as well as slight hints of liquorice. Tannins are well-built but young. Good length. Very good job!
